Airports in Tahiti
The airport is located about three miles (6km) from Papeete on the island of Tahiti.
Getting to the city
In the parking lot opposite the terminal building, passengers can hop aboard 'Le Truck', an open-top taxi-van, providing public transport in Tahiti and ride into town for a fare of around US$1. Taxis are available but cost around US$10 for the trip into town. It is worth making sure that the fare is agreed on up front before setting off in a taxi.
